I’m unapologetically raw and honest. Motherhood is messy and so beautifully difficult. It’s the most rewarding and yet the scariest thing I’ve ever done. And I try my hardest to take pictures of it all: the cracked nipples, the postpartum body and hairloss, the blowouts and 2 am cry sessions, everything. It’s a season, and seasons pass.
I want everything documented. I want my children in 20 years to be able to look back at this crazy life because I didn’t grow up with pictures. I currently have about 20 pictures from my childhood (which these photos were found by accident just recently), so taking and having pictures is something that I am determined to provide to my children and those around me. It is something I always recommend to everyone else as well because I know what it’s like to not have pictures and how important they truly are.
It’s so cliche but pictures speak a thousand words. They can stir up forgotten emotions, and trigger a waterfall of tears in an instant. Both positively and negatively. But that’s life.
I love the chaos of life. It’s f**king beautiful.
